Jeff Spangler had a vision in 1993 to start a firm that was committed to quality in the placement process. With one client Next Step Recruiting was born in a tiny office in Redwood City, California. Glenn Davis was introduced through a mutual acquaintance and the chemistry was immediate. Glenn became a partner in 1995 and the company was primed for growth. NSR became a Top 5 agency in the Bay Area, with specialties in contract furniture, software and outsourcing services.

Defined Search was started in Dallas by Jeff in 2004 as a boutique firm specializing in the commercial furnishings market. In 2012 James Magee joined the organization and became a partner in 2016. Succession Capital Partners was formed to facilitate the growing need clients face in transitioning their businesses to the next generation of qualified leaders and entrepreneurs.
